Is Shark Week over yet? I love shark movies, everything from Jaws to Deep Blue Sea. I've been waiting to see that Meg movie, but since that probably won't be happening for a long time, I'll settle for this. Variety reports that Halle Berry has joined the cast of a new action-thriller titled Dark Tide. She will play a diving instructor who returns to the deep after a near-fatal incident with a Great White shark. Unfortunately this guy probably won't be a genetically enhanced shark (like in Deep Blue Sea), but I have feeling it will be as life-like as they can make it, adding more thrill to the experience. Shooting will start later this year.
The screenplay for Dark Tide was written by newcomer Amy Sorlie and also developed by literary manager Sukee Chew. SWAT and The Sentinel director Clark Johnson will be directing with Twilight producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey developing via their Temple Hill production company. I'm really not a fan of Halle Berry anymore and wouldn't have even cared about this if it weren't for the shark side of it. I'm in need of a good shark movie and unfortunately Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus just doesn't cut it. Who knows if Dark Tide will be focused more on the shark or more on her trauma, but I'll be keeping an eye on it!
